Haiku

Post by Maggs » 07 Feb 2014, 15:27

Haiku


To play Haiku you need to follow strict rules:- a comment, statement or poem of only three lines with each line having a set tempo.


First line has 5 syllables
second line has 7 syllables
third line has 5 syllables


DO NOT play unless you can manage to obey the rules.
Example.....

On my toasted bread
I am partial to butter
That is enough said.

I'd say I'm now scared
to put my pen on paper
But,look you - I dared!

Jump in the deep end
swim to bottom of the pool
and rise again my friend.

Beg Pardon - I boobooed!


To maintain the game
I will admit to my shame
of missing the mark

From where I'm standing
I can see it all happen
And I close my eyes

By the old Mill stream
I can hear the waters flow
as I sit and dream

Good old Nellie Dean
I hear that song sung again
The room is spinning

I rise with the larks
soaring into the heavens
to swoop through the trees

I go to bed late
I wake up very early
Where's the fun in that?

Dull is the day until
blue skies enhance the sunlight
and we are happy.

Bought a silver bike
Did not ride so passed it on
Now there's a red one

Fail to note winter
Fall head first into Spring
and summer is near.

If I tried singing
All the birds would look at me
And all fly away

One asks for pleasure
to enjoy an afternoon
in peace and quiet.
